Whoosh! Hold onto your hat! It was a windy day at storytime!
We learned about how wind is formed with cold air and warm air. We also know that wind can be scary and gentle. Wind is powerful and soft. Wind also liked to play and cause mischief. In Hutchins' book The Wind Blew, the wind collected item from everyone in town and then went out to sea! In Root's book, the wind blew the words right out of the animals! Bonnie Bumble had a long day pairing up the right noise to the right animal.
After storytime, our friends made windsocks to hang up at their homes. Thank you, Banta for sharing a great craft! Now everyone can see the wind in action.
